General:

Freshmen:  
Need time to complete homework?  Need help with assignments you are struggling with?  GEAR UP is starting KNIGHTS HALL, a study and tutoring center.  Held in Room 223, times are :  after school on Monday and Wednesday - before school on Tuesday and Thursday, and during lunches on Wednesday and Friday.

PAK Slips:  PAK slips are back!  PAK stands for Positive Actions of Knights.  Staff members will be handing out PAK slips to students in and out of the classroom fro exhibiting positive behaviors.  These slips can then be turned in to the attendance desk for a chance to win a free lunch with a couple of your friends. Drawings will be held twice a month.

Vape Counseling:   Do you vape and want support in quitting?  Counseling will be offering a Vaping Cessation Group starting next week.  If interested, see Ms. Brown or your counselor.

Middle School:  High School students should not go to the middle school campus before or after school.

Students Who Drive to EVHS:  You need to have purchased a Parking Pass in the Business Office and it needs to be displayed in your vehicle at all times.  There is no student parking in the east parking lot - this lot is for staff only.

Skill Center:  All Skill Center students need to come to the counseling center to pick up a transportation form. You are not allowed to drive unless you have this form filled out and returned.Students, if you attend Skill Center in the afternoon, you will not be released from class by your teacher until 10:50 am.  If you leave class earlier than this you will be referred to the administration for a conference.  Thank you for following this policy.

Dress Code:  As a reminder - our school day dress needs to be appropriate - this means that pants below the waistline, bare midriffs due to short shirts, and clothing that speaks to drugs or alcohol will not be allowed.  All staff will be connecting with students who are not wearing appropriate clothing throughout each day.  If you are not wearing appropriate clothing you may be asked to change or we will contact home for more appropriate clothes to be brought to school for you.  We want all of our students to display professionalism and dress in a manner suitable for an educational environment. Be sure you are following the dress code on a daily basis and dress to impress!

Laptops:  DO NOT LEAVE YOUR LAPTOPS IN YOUR VEHICLES.  Not only are computers susceptible to damage due to cold and heat, leaving a $1000 piece of technology in your car creates an excellent target for thieves.  A good rule of thumb:  if you wouldn't do it to your phone, don't do it to your laptop.

Loaner Laptops:  If you need a loaner laptop, you should come to the library FIRST THING when you arrive - BEFORE SCHOOL.  The library staff is not always available to help you in the middle of the period so be responsible and take care of your needs BEFORE school starts!  If Ms. Mead is teaching classes, she will not check out a loaner to you.  It is your responsibility to check out your loaner before school begins.

Lunch Reminder:  All food purchased in the cafeteria at lunch may not be taken to the parking lot to eat. Food may be eaten in the cafeteria, the tiled area outside of the commons, and the courtyard.  Please remember to clean up after yourself - the courtyard and tiled areas have been littered with garbage after both lunches.

Campus - Open/Closed: Students - as a reminder, East Valley High School is a closed campus.  This means students are not allowed to go out of the building to the parking lot during class or passing period.  The campus is only open during lunch time to juniors and seniors in good standing.  Students will not be allowed to go get items from cars in the parking lot during any class time or passing period.

Food Delivered to Classrooms: please remember that ordering food online during class time and having it delivered to you during class time is prohibited. This causes a disruption to the learning environment so please respect this policy or progressive discipline will be applied.

Do you have a job? Did you know you can earn a half credit for working and come to school late or leave early? Come to the counseling center to find out more information.

Not on Campus After School Hours: Please note you must exit the high school by 2:35pm unless you are staying for an adult supervised activity.

Parking Lots: Please remember students may not occupy or visit the parking lots in between class periods without the permission of a teacher, Joe Salmon, or an Administrator. The only exception to these rules are at lunch IF the student has an approved Off-Campus Lunch Pass, and they intend to leave school grounds for lunch.

Bus Transportation: Bus drivers may no longer accept parent notes from students to ride another bus home. Students will now need to pick up a temporary bus pass from Jeanie. A note or phone call to Jeanie from a parent is needed in order to get a temporary bus pass. Take care of this BEFORE 2:30pm.
